to president obama because health care is his signature issue. before the judge's ruling, two judges sided with the administration and one had ruled obamacare unconstitutional so it's two against two. thus as predicted the law will go to the supreme court. talking points is not surprised by the judge's decision. a year and a half ago i said this. >> government is saying that you have to buy health insurance? >> right. >> i say it's unconstitutional. the government doesn't have the power to force an american to buy that. >> the question is, if i knew that and many of you knew that why did the obama administration not know. the answer -- wishful thinking. from the beginning, the issue of force to purchase was paramont. this is not a public safety issue where laws are made to protect people. if you can't afford health insurance there are entitlements to help you out but some folks will not buy health insurance. if the feds can insure your healththey can extend the mandate and compel other purchases in pursuit of social justice. that is what this is all about. constitution limits the governmen

as the protests break a new record, the obama admiration is backing off calling for immediate reform. disaster. we enter their fact-free zone tonight. on thursday, the republicans in the house are going to unveil their new round of spending cuts. they say they will cut on the floor 15% of discretionary spending from the domestic budget, including the money needed to regulate the banks. how convenient. they also want to cut money for food safety. yeah, who needs safe food? now, why do we need they so-called -- they're definitely drastic, but why the so-called cuts? because they blew up our budget over these massive tax cuts. republicans are addicted to these tax cuts. every time they run for office they promise move. they love to tell you that the democrats want to take more of your hard-earned money. well, this weekend the president unfortunately fed the freak-out machine with this comment. >> do you deny you're a man that wants to redistribute wealth? >> absolutely. i didn't raise taxes once. i lowered taxes over the last two years. >> that revved up the right-wing blogosphere and immediately sta

as president obama pulled his support of mubarak and urged him not to run again. president obama responded to the news earlier tonight. >> the president: after his speech tonight, i spoke directly to president mubarak. he recognizes the status quo is not sustainable and a change must take place. the fear of civil unrest continues to spread. has clearly shaken up the king of jordan. today he gave into public pressure and cleaned house by firing his government and appointing a new prime minister, effective immediately. his priorities will be to provide economic reform and increase popular participation in the decision-making process. do any of these changes go far enough? here with us is arizona senator mccain. a member of the committee on homeland security and governmental affairs. thanks for being with us. >> thank you, interesting times. >> sean: interesting and extraordinarily dangerous. i listened closely to the president's remarks tonight. as he was praising the demonstrators, and showing his support for the demonstrators, he didn't -- and talking about full participation even though o
, balanced, and >> laura: and in the impact segment tonight, president obama was asked about the situation in egypt at a press conference this afternoon. he called for an orderly transition process to begin now and said this about his conversations with president mubarak. >> i have had two conversations with president mubarak since this crisis in egypt began. and each time i have emphasized the fact that the future of egypt is going to be in the hands of egyptians it is not us who will determine that future, but i have also said that in light of what has happened over the last two weeks, going back to the old ways is not going to work. >> laura: how is the administration handling the crisis? let's bring in karl rove who is, of course, the senior advisor to president bush. karl, good to see you. some people out there are now saying that, maybe the president is speaking too much. that we hear from him almost too much on egypt. he also said today that hosni mubarak needs to consider his legacy, what he is going to leave behind that seemed odd to me. i think we are late for legacy building for
hour. there's growing concern the obama administration is sending mixed signals to egypt with the defense secretary robert gates now speaking out about the crisis for the first time, and he's praising, praisie ining in strong terms and words, the egyptian military. let's go to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. she has details. what's the latest. >> reporter: well, you know, wolf, the white house calling for a media change and the state department calling for a processive change. one thing seems very clear. the protesters are not going away. with crowds swelling in cairo's tahrir square, a greater sense of urgency from the u.s. that the egyptian government needs to show change is coming. in a phone call u.s. vice president joe biden telling egyptian vice president omar suleiman there must be a transition with, quote, immediate, irreversible progress. >> vice president suleiman made particularly unhelpful comments about egypt not being ready for democracy, about not seeing a lift of the emergency law, and i don't -- i don't think that in any way squares with what th
demonstration to date. here in washington, the obama administration is playing down concerns that if president mubarak is forced out, radical islamists could cease power. yet, there's a sense of frustration and uncertainty at the white house. the administration has made clear to president mubarak he needs an exit strategy but sees no evidence as yet he is ready for a true dialogue with his critics. as one official put it to me, "it is not clear he is listening, and he may try to overstay his already overstayed time." and we have more from cairo. >> reporter: hi, john. on that point you were just making there about the concern that exists that if the moib regime should fall there would be some islamic government that would take over, a lot of strong opinions on that front from the streets of cairo. people saying that, no, that is not the case because this is not an islamic revolt. this is a revolt of the people and what they do want is democracy. and anyone who comes into power should president mubarak should fall should be held as accountable as he is being held by the population right now. th
time. >> bret: president obama says the whole world is watching what happens in egypt. we'll have live reports from cairo and the white house. islam's supreme leader forecast islamic revolution in egypt. we look at what it might mean. new unemployment figures report a lowest jobless rate, but few new jobs. live from the studio in washington, this is "special report." good evening. i'm bret baier. president obama today warned egypt that violence including attacks on protesters and journalists is unacceptable. and said he was encouraged by the restraint shown today. it was, in fact, a day largely free of conflict on the streets as parties elsewhere laid out various scenarios for a transition of power. correspondent leland vittert begins coverage live from cairo where it's 1 serz a.m good morning, leland -- 1:00 a.m good morning, leland. >> reporter: good morning from cairo. day 11 of the protest. protesters said with the deadline for president mubarak to step down from office. that hasn't happened. state tv shows pictures behind me of the protesters still in the square. nobody knows wher
want our say and we're willing to fight for it. president obama says that hosni mubarak recognized to pack up and move on, load it up with gold and make it to his luxury condo. let democracy take over. so be it. it's not what the people want but the problem is who the people want. one guy the protestors have put forward is a fella named mohamed elbaradei, he has been playing peace keeper. he says the promise not to run begins the president, quote, a trick. i say, elbarradei, be careful and beware of this guy. it seems like the radical muslim brotherhood is behind the mohamed elbaradei selection. they are no fans of america, free mark or the democracy we love and share. last night john mccain that mohamed elbaradei is no friend of the u.s. and could be a finger figure head of the radical muslim brotherhood. be careful what you ask for and it could be trouble for us and a democracy you say you are fighting for. is there. >> let me bring in a practicing physician and president of the american forum for democracy. robert spencer of jihad watch and former c.i.a. analyst and author of a
are confused about this, we are going to run danger of president obama following president carter, where carter lost iran. i could imagine obama losing egypt. >> sean: i think the ship has sailed. there seems to be no organized leader in terms of those that want true freedom, liberty and . the muslim brotherhood is organized and better financed and probably better armed. it seems likelihood, depending on what the military does that is going to be likely. you are at cpac today. you offer suggestions of how barack obama would be deserving to speak at cpac. all domestic. foreign policy is front and center in the country. how big an issue do you think foreign policy becomes in the 2012 election as you travel? >> well, i don't know yet. i think that if you go back and look at the period before the shah collapsed, carter looked fine. the period after there was a hostage crisis, after the to have questions invaded afghanistan, after communists were active, carter looked weak in foreign policy. it became a huge issue by 1980. right now, i think obamacare is a polarizing thing people want to appeal. the
of them. >>> president obama meanwhile is meeting with his top national security advisers. we're going to have much more on what the white house is doing. what's been the white house role in all these dramatic developments in egypt? the obama administration putting pressure on the egyptian president to step down. stay with us for that. also, egypt's control of a vital oil shipping lane. if the crisis continues, we could all feel the impact. you know, when i grow up, i'm going to own my own restaurant. i want to be a volunteer firefighter. when i grow up, i want to write a novel. i want to go on a road trip. when i grow up, i'm going to go there. i'm going to work with kids. i want to fix up old houses.

, expected mubarak to step down tonight. that was obviously incorrect intelligence. >> for barack obama, tomorrow he will face a different kind of crisis, much more volatile. >> that is really vintage mubarak. >> i mean, he's been our puppet dictator. we built his army. >> so his interests have been our interests. >> what worries me a great deal, the army might intervene. >> going to be a tense night out here. >> good evening. in cairo, thousands of angry protesters have entered day 18 of an uprising, calling for president hosni mubarak to leave. when day breaks there, many fear it will be the most dangerous day of the crisis. all day today, the world anticipated mubarak would announce that he would step down. instead, he stepped up to a podium in his palace and said this -- >> while i'm fully aware of the crossroad we are at and based on my firm conviction that egypt is going through a defining moment in its history, i have seen that it is required to delegate the powers of -- and authority of the president to the vice president as per the constitution. >> handing over authority to vic
